    I have the firewall turned off on my desktop Win 7 64 bit Pro and my wife's XP Pro laptop. Don't need a software firewall since I depend on the hardware firewalls in my 2Wire and Dlink routers.

    If you are using a router, most of them have a hardware firewall, making a software firewall moot.
